David Yates, the director who did four of Harry Potter's most lucrative chapters yet still frustratingly remains "David Yates (II)" on IMDb, is returning to the world of wizardry J.K. Rowling made up. Sources tell Variety that Yates has agreed to helm Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them, the Potter spin-off prequel that focuses on the adventures of New Yorker Newt Scamander, the fictional author of the titular book. The job had been previously rumored to be going to Prisoner of Azkaban director Alfonso Cuarón, but of course, with the success of Gravity, he'll now instead be tackling Gravity 2: Clooney's Revenge.
